You can read here (Leslie Howard’s Last Film), an article published in Illustrated on June 26, 1943, just a few days after Leslie’s death. The article includes several photos taken on the set, with surgical instruments and equipments which were loaned by hospitals. All technical scenes were conducted under the direction of the theatre supervisor of the London Hospital.

This co-operation was remembered in May 1944, when Laurence Olivier unveiled a tablet at the London Hospital, in memory of Leslie Howard.
